Books by Richard Lester

Richard Lester trained with Sotheby's in the early 1990s having worked for Osborne & Little and Liberty and combines writing with running an online vintage fashion business based in Sussex. In 2004 he donated a large collection of designs by John Bates to the Fashion Museum in Bath and assisted in organising the designer's retrospective exhibition at the museum in 2006. ACC Editions published Photographing Fashion: British Style in the Sixties in 2009. Marit Allen (1941-2007) was one of the most important names in fashion in the 1960s, working initially for Queen magazine and subsequently for Vogue as editor of 'Young Ideas'. There she played a vital role in promoting young British designers such as John Bates, who designed her spectacular silver wedding outfit in 1966. From the early 1970s she excelled in costume design for film, with credits including Don't Look Now (1973), Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and collaborations with director Ang Lee including Brokeback Mountain (2005).
